110513. Bottle at home. Pours deep amber with a pinkish head. Aroma raspberries. Lots of it. More like a fruit than a lambic. Way too juicy for my taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
8oz draught. Beige head dissolves in a minute to a thin covering over a rust and coppery body which a direct backlight reveals is really a pleasing ruby red. Aroma is fresh red berries like raspberry and strawberry some being tart (as in not quite ripe) and fresh apple - really appetizing if you like tart fruit. Taste is salty with mild sweetness and sourness and mild bitterness. There is a not-too-subtle bitter finish. Palate is lively, fine carbonation like soda pop (not the taste - the feel). This is a very well-crafted beer.

Artificial raspberry syrup dominates the aroma. Taste fortunately doesn't suffer the same fate: mildly tart, traces of fresh raspberries, kinda sweet though. No desire to see this again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very enjoyable fruity tart aroma, but the flavour just can’t match the wonderful intensity of the aroma. Still very enjoyable.
